Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star – 18 May 2021 – 18/5/2021 – Tuesday – BBC

Series 3 Episode 5 of 8

For the professional assignment the six remaining MUAs are booked to do the make-up on a beauty shoot, for global online retailer ASOS. The MUAs create looks for an ASOS Face and Body social media video to the online retailer’s 22 million social media followers, the largest audience reach in Glow Up history! Joining Val and Dominic this week and heading up the ASOS shoot is guest judge and design director Vanessa Spence.

Dialling up the pressure for their fifth assignment, the MUAs have just two hours to design and create a look which fits the client’s Luminate makeup brief. The MUAs must create creative polished looks which showcase the mascara, their looks must also feature a shimmery eye and a glow on the skin, their looks must also align with ASOS’s brand identity and be inspiring and relatable. The MUA’s looks and models will then be screen tested by the judges to see which MUA has hit the brief and created the strongest look that will then go onto be shot and used in the ASOS Face and Body social media video campaign.

The next day, the MUAs gather at Glow Up Studios to find out which two were judged to have created the weakest looks for the online retailer’s social media video campaign. They both start the day in the red Face Off chairs with a 15-minute time penalty in the Creative Brief. For these two MUAs, the only way to escape the Face Off elimination at the end of the day is to wow the judges in the Creative Brief, so they beat the seat, meaning another MUA will need to take their place.

Staying in the online world for this week’s Creative Brief the MUAs are challenged to create a look that is ‘out of this world’. The Judges want the MUAs to design conceptual make up looks that are bold and imaginative, they could choose to explore space as we know it, imagine an extraterrestrial life or create their own vision of another world.

One MUA struggles with their prosthetic cheekbone application, whilst another battles with their bald cap and risks are taken with an alien and human DNA mash up and an alien high fashion beauty look.
The judge’s feedback and deliberate over which two MUAs have produced the weakest looks before revealing who will go head-to-head in the Face Off elimination, a make-up skill drill under intense time pressure, here they are tasked with creating a structured glitter eye. The MUA who least impresses packs up their make-up kit and leaves the competition.
